On June 4th the Institute for School and Community Partnerships (ISCP) hosted the first team summit with esteemed facilitator, Dr. Suhkdeep Kaur and a few guest speakers. The summit provided the ISCP team an opportunity to learn about each of the team members' strengths using the CliftonStrengthsFinders while also spending time to develop plans for next academic year. Guest speakers, Julia Grizzard, Executive Director of Bexar County Education Coalition, provided a detailed debrief of the past legislative session and spent time answering questions about pieces of legislation impacting public school systems. Each ISCP SB1882 school campus as well as the CAST STEM campus were represented and the team agreed to meet at least 2-3 times a year to ensure positive student outcomes. Special thanks to A&M San Antonio for hosting the ISCP team at the beautiful Patriot's Casa.
